Travel Blogs from Colorado Springs
Colorado Springs is just another of those places that I thought, hey, that looks nice, and it's on the way... And that is what we used the place for. The drive there was pretty non eventful too.
So, what to do in a place that you will only be in for one night? Go across the road and buy beer, order in pizza, do your washing and watch telly …
It was it a great weekend being lazy with Marylu in a new city. It took Colorado off the states I haven't seen. We got in and walked to downtown and ate dinner at a place called Ritz or The Ritz or something. Wasn't that good anyway so don't worry about. We stopped by a liquor store and got beer and went back to the hotel room. I remember falling …
America the Beautiful.......... I know you know we all know that I am absolutely the worst singer..... hence im not finishing the lyrics to the above song. I left my hotel after an early breakfast of potatoes and sausage... yum, and drove the wee 6 mile drive west off of route 24 to Manitou Springs. This small town is nestled at the bottom of Pikes …
After I left Arches, I took a route 128 for a nice little scenic trip. Utah has been an enjoyable state to drive. 128 takes your around the canyons right along the Colorado river. I made a stop in Grand Junction Colorado to make my arrangements for the evening. I got the scoop on a site that I wanted to check out. I headed out to Glenwood Springs …
... of course, clambered into the balloon followed by the special man in her life. The Go Pros were attached with cable ties and all was ready for the lift off. It was stunning. Don't have the words to describe floating above the world below,looking over lakes (and water treatment plants) and to the mountains beyond. All too soon it was time to descend at 800 feet per minute. We floated over a small lake to a paddock where one of the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Clarion Hotel and Conference Center Colorado Springs
Better then I expected!
Purchased the room on the internet, then after reading some reviews, we were nervous, but figured for the price we paid, we could afford to walk out and go somewhere else. The staff were very friendly, nice and eager to please. The room was clean as any of the other hotels where we had stayed on this vacation. Also the rooms had been remodeled recently. However, the hotel is old, the resturant was not in opperation that evening, but they shuttled us to a very nice resturant not very far away. All in all for the price we paid, our experience was fine.
Loved the LE BARON
I booked this hotel online and then read all these reviews.but don't believe everything you read. we got there and everything was wonderful. the hot tub was awesome. the pool a little cold for my blood. the rooms were just as good as any other hotel. the staff was excellent. the only complaint was i kepy losing my money inthe coke machine, which they refunded. i would stay here again any time. It was wonderful. these people who were unhappy were from another planet. stay here it is worth it!
Less than Expected
Booked the hotel online. The lobby was a true representation, but the rooms were lacking. We just wanted a cool room and a quite place to sleep. The 1st room's A/C stopped working within 30 minutes. The 4th room finally had a working A/C. But after about an hour the noise and racket from the unit made it impossible to sleep, and we travel with ear plugs! We will not be staying again, nor should you.
Nice Older Hotel!
This is an older hotel just west of downtown Colorado Springs in an older neighborhood. The staff was VERY friendly going out of their way to please us. Being an older property, it had a few issues but evidence of remodeling work was apparent. There is an onsite restaurant with a very limited menu.
One big concern I had was security and safety. The last night we were there, I was looking for something out of my vehicle in the dark parking lot. I was approached by 2 people trying to pan handle some money. Fortunately, they went on their way but given the darkness and no barrier between the street and neighborhood, it could easily have gone bad.
What a dump! Do not stay there.
What a DUMP of a hotel, this hotel should be closed or bulldozed. The overall appearance of this hotel, I would never recommend or ever stay there again. In otherwords don't waste your money!
We have been under renovation since March of this year. All our guest room balconeys have been remodeled along with our second and third floor guest corridors. The parking lot has been resurfaced and we remodeled our lounge by adding seven new television monitors and furniture. These projects along with many others are scheduled to be completed by mid June. We are truly sorry you have experienced the inconviences of our renovation projects. We trust that these projects will enhance our hotel to those future travelers.
What a wonderful hotel!
What a wonderful hotel staff! From the sales and catering staff to the front desk staff, I would recommend this hotel to anyone! They all did a fantastic job!
The hotel is certainly not posh, but a good value for the money. It could use a little "sprucing up", but all in all was what we would expect for what we paid. The best part was the friendly service.
Everyone we came in contact with was anxious to please. The breakfast coupons were a great value -delicious. With a rental car, we had no problems getting anywhere we wanted to go.
Needs lots of repairs
Lobby is impressive but rooms need reparis and paint, poorly lighted, swimming pool missing tiles, hot bath not working, and exterior of place in need of paint. No questions asked when you leave. I would not stay there again.
Lobby is beautiful and impressive, our room was neither. There were problems with our TV (they were fixed quickly), the air conditioner was very noisy, the bathroom was dingy and while we were close enough to walk to the downtown area, the neighborhood made us very uncomfortable after dark. We will not be staying there again until the rooms are upgraded.
